La Salle Middle School

Formerly De La Salle Middle School, La Salle is a public charter school located in North St. Louis. La Salle is committed to transforming children and our community through innovative education, as De La Salle Middle has been since 2001.

Rooted in the Lasallian tradition of making a quality education accessible to all, we provide excellence in education, promote service, justice, care, inclusivity, community and zeal.

We proudly proclaim, “I am somebody!”


We nurture loving relationships which build whole–person wellbeing.


Empowerment, accessibility, every voice matters, active engagement


We open doors to our neighbors so all feel welcome.


We are called to ask “how can I help”?


We see unfairness. We take responsibility to fix it.


We feel unabashed enthusiasm for life, love and learning.

Registration is open!


At the start and close of each day, at lunch, during classes, in the halls—anytime the community needs to be called to order—La Salle students and staff proudly declare “I Am Somebody.” This simple phrase is the backbone of La Salle’s beliefs—that every person has dignity, worth and value. It is both our motto and a way to constantly remind our students and staff that we are all valuable members of our community.
